North Collins seeks a school superintendent

The North Collins School Board is awaiting responses to a request for proposals for a superintendent search consultant.

Superintendent Joan Thomas told the board Tuesday night she has sent the request to find a consultant. Prices range from $6,000 to $18,000 for the services, which include researching candidates’ backgrounds.

Thomas announced her retirement at the board meeting June 23. She plans to stay until Dec. 23.

Board members also discussed filling a vacancy on the board created by David Gier’s resignation.

The board has asked Martin Niefergold, a former board member who did not seek re-election in May, if he wants to return. Another person has expressed interest in the seat, said board member Mark Snow, but board members have not yet interviewed that candidate.
